I need your help. I have a Rugged Ridge exhaust system. The tailpipe is straight at the end rather then bending down to the floor. Anyway, I've just bought a draw-tite receiver hitch, started to fit it and realised the tailpipe will be in the way, as the hitch is based on the tailpipe bending down to the floor.
The option I can think of is cutting the tailpipe by some 6inches. This will still mean that the exhaust fumes will hit the hitch as they exit the pipe, albeit a couple of inches away.
Has anyone else come across this problem? Is this the only option? Is reducing the length of the tailpipe a viable option?
I should add, don't want to change the rear fender
